Spain announces €750 million incentive scheme for clean-tech manufacturing

Spain’s government has submitted a new incentive scheme to a public consultation. It is designed to support the development of a clean-tech supply chain in the country, including the production of batteries.

India’s Nova Solar expanding PV module capacity to 1.2 GW

Nova Solar (Novasys Greenergy) says it will reach a PV module production capacity of 1.2 GW per year with the commissioning of new stringer machines in the middle of April.

Renewable energy adoption taking off in Rwanda

The European Union has secured a critical raw materials deal with Rwanda, expanding collaboration between the two sides – particularly in the solar sector. A friendly regulatory environment deserves credit for helping to fast-track the adoption of solar, according to local analysts.

Mine engineers develop air PV for applications in limited spaces

Engineers in Spain have developed a PV system solution that uses steel cables as a mounting structure. They say it is deployable in different scenarios with limited space.

Air Liquide, Sasol sign PPAs to supply 110 MW of renewables in South Africa

Air Liquide and Sasol have signed new power purchase agreements (PPAs) with South Africa’s Enel Green Power RSA. The two companies have entered into four PPAs since the start of 2023 and are now set to supply around 690 MW of renewables to Sasol’s site in Secunda, South Africa.

PV modules now selling in Europe for €0.10/W to €0.115/W

Solar module prices could slightly increase as European warehouses reduce their panel stockpiles, says Leen van Bellen, business development manager Europe for Search4Solar, a Dutch purchasing platform for solar products. He tells pv magazine that TOPCon modules will soon overtake traditional PERC products in Europe.

Arizona approves ‘discriminatory’ charge for rooftop solar customers

The Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) has approved a request from utility APS to raise rates and add a punitive charge to rooftop solar customers.

Waaree showcases 420 W mono PERC flexible solar modules

Waaree says its FLW series of flexible, lightweight solar panels can be seamlessly integrated into a diverse range of environments. It claims that they are ideal for applications in which traditional, rigid panels could pose challenges.

First attempt to design CIGS/SWCNT tandem solar cells promises 38.91% efficiency

Indian researchers have proposed to build tandem solar cells based on a CIGS top cell and a bottom cell relying on a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) absorber. SWCNTs were previously used in solar research as an alternative to conventional metal grid contacts or hole transport layers (HTLs), as they combine optoelectronic properties, flexibility, chemical stability, and simple transfer protocols.

PVT-assisted heat pump for residential water heating

A group of scientists in China has designed a residential heat pump system with a potential cofficient of performance of 4.271 at -5 C. The system is reportedly able to adjust the required pressures based on solar irradiance intensity and ambient temperature
